While it might be here a little later than I promised, it’s time for my official review on LIPSENSE! Lipsense is a non-toxic, water proof, KISS proof, lead free, wax free, gluten free, GMO free, Cruelty free, MADE IN THE USA, long lasting lip color. That’s enough to make your head spin right? Mine too!
I’ll be honest, I resisted trying Lipsense for quite a while. I'm not sure why exactly, but I did. Months ago I purchased one color, and I liked it very much; but at that time I didn’t buy the gloss, and I didn’t apply it as I should have. So, while I loved the color, it didn’t exactly turn me into a Lipsense groupie.
After repeated inquiries from my followers on my thoughts on Lipsense, I thought it was time to give it an official try, and do it right this time. Lipsense is sold through distributors, but not in stores. I reached out to my contact and ordered Aussie Rose. This is a color that is a little outside the box for me as I am typically a neutral kinda girl. But, I chose this shade because I felt like I could really see the quality of the color throughout the day.
On my first day I applied three coats of the product as instructed, and topped it off with the Glossy Gloss. It looked great and I was initially impressed. However, as the day went on I felt like the color was fading a bit, and my lips were oddly peeling layers of the color off. At this point I figured I had just wasted my money, and was ready to write a much different review. In an effort to give it another try, I reached out to my contact again and sent her a picture of my lips. That’s when I learned that Lipsense requires a little technique.
Things to know…
1. You should lightly shake your Lipsense before you apply.
2. Make sure your lips are clean before you apply; using the Lipsense Oops Remover can assist with this.
3. When you apply your three layers you need to do them each in the same direction. No back and forth swiping as you would with a typical lipstick
4. You need to wait about 5 seconds in between each layer to allow it to set.
5. Apply the Glossy Gloss (or Lipsense gloss of your choice, because there are multiple) many times throughout the day.
She also shared that many people endure a shedding period when they first try the Lipsense. This is because they have either used other products that have created a build-up on their lips, or their lips are a little dry. Because Lipsense is loaded with Vitamin E it’s actually really good for your lips. She encouraged me to wear the color over the next couple of days to complete the shedding process. I decided to give it a go the following day, and my lips were already transformed. Here are a few pictures I documented throughout the day.
As you can see, it really stayed looking great all day long. While the color doesn’t transfer or move, the gloss will need to be reapplied throughout the day.
Later that evening I washed my face, and I was sure if I scrubbed hard enough I would be able to get it off my lips. Wrong. I literally had to use the Oops Remover to get it off! It's seriously not going any where, so be sure when you apply you do so carefully.
After results like these you can imagine how many colors I ordered for my wedding parties! This will be perfect for them!
Lipsense comes in 36 shades with 11 gloss choices, although Glossy Gloss seems to be a favorite. A color is $25, glosses are $20, and Oops Remover is $10, which may seem a little steep, but I saw this chart and realized it totally makes sense. As I mentioned, you cannot find Lipsense in any stores. You will need a distributor to place an order. Most distributors order their stock monthly and you “shop their stock” for colors. If you are looking for a specific color that can make things a little tricky but so far I have loved every color I have.
I'm so glad to finally have brought this post to you. So many people have asked me my thoughts on Lipsense for so long now. Remember to find me on Instagram and Facebook ,(although I am much more interactive on IG these days).
